Bettie Page and Roberta Lou: a touching tribute

Children's books were the FURTHEST things from my mind when I was in art school. Back then, I was drawing smut any chance I got. What can I say? Too many all-nighters watching channel J (the extra E is for extra pee!) warped my already twisted mind, and began to creep their way into my work. My most cherished reference material was a catalogue of Bettie Page and Tempest Storm S & M photos. I am posting these in loving memory of Bettie Page, who's beauty and humor inspire my art to the present day and my mother who I can't believe has been dead for nearly 6 years. Thank you for eating dog food from '88-'92 so I could go to art school and draw big butts and angry, red twats. You must have been so proud! Here's some of my favorite Bettie-inspired drawings created at the sweet, tender age of 19.

i need to give a shout out to my hilarious ex-roomie Anne for naming this one "Betty Blue Boob".
